Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read list 

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and the Bookish which I adore and therefore chose to adopt into my weekly blog posts!

To be released this Spring: 

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened - By Jenny Lawson (aka TheBloggess) Some of you may already follow Jenny’s blog and know that she is hilarious. I find myself laughing out loud at her tweets on a daily basis and I can only sympathize with poor Victor yet feel a little jealous that he gets to take part in Jenny’s adventures. I am highly anticipating this book and I am sure it will make me furiously happy.

Storybound By Marissa Burt - This one is on my challenge list for “debut author challenge” and the blurb reminds me of Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu so I can only hope it lives up to my expectations.

The Selection By Kiera Cass - Gorgeous cover and one of my top anticipated reads of 2012.

Of Poseidon By Anna Banks - A "fish out of water story" that I hope changes my mind regarding "mermaid" reads. Also, Goodreads doesn't have any information about it being a series and that makes me SO happy. I am eager to read some standalone novels.

Blackbirds By Chuck Wendig - This one has been on a few of my top ten posts, it looks amazing by all standards.

Already released books that I am anticipating reading this Spring:

Harbinger By Sara Wilson Etienne - Another one on my "debut author challenge" list.

The Fault in Our Stars By John Green - Reading this one for book club on April 3, I have heard great things so I am pretty excited!

Scarlet By A. C. Gaughen - A Robin Hood retelling? Yes please!

Out of Oz By Gregory Maguire - I am hoping to read this in the Spring though I think I want to go back and at least read Son of a Witch and A Lion Among Men first so I am not sure if I will get to them!

A Game of Thrones By George R. R. Martin: I had hoped to read at least the first three books before April 1 but I don't see that happening. In a nutshell: I NEED TO FINISH THIS SERIES!!!

That's it for me, what's on your Top Ten this week?


  1. The Fault In Our Stars is AMAZING!

    Seriously, I hope you love it.

    Storybound sounds really good!

  2. I agree, you will love The Fault In Our Stars - I read it in one sitting! I love anything John Green. Have you read Looking For Alaska? I think that's his best!

    I just started Game of Thrones as well. I have a feeling it's going to take me a looong time. It's only something I'm reading on the side. I do love the HBO series, though!

    Great choices! And thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I need to get A Game of Thrones!!! I've been lusting for a copy after watching the series! I need more! The War is coming this April! eeeek awesome list! I want a copy of TFiOS too~ Happy Reading!!!

    Hope you could drop by @ We Fancy Books

  4. I loved The Fault in Our Stars and I hope to read Scarlet soon. I'll have to look into Storybound because I thought Breadcrumbs was fantastic.

  5. Honestly I haven't read any of these! Some of them are on my list though, like The Fault in our Stars... I may have to check some of these others out.
    Thanks for stopping by!!

  6. You really need to read A Game of Thrones and the rest of the series. They're amazing! :)
    Great choices.

    Here's my Top Ten list:

  7. I want to get my hands on The Selection so bad! The cover is great, and I also like the one for Harbinger. Good choices! Thanks for visiting!

  8. I'm really tempted by A Game of Thrones. Sometimes the hype puts me off books but in this case it sounds like it's justified :-)

  9. I think I need to buy that Scarlet book myself. I haven't seen many reviews about it yet. Great list!

  10. Bwahahaha, literally lol'ing at the amazing GoT pic. And yes, you do totally need to read SoIaF because it is fan freaking tastic. I hadn't heard of Storybound, but I am excited to hear about it, especially if it ends up being kind of like Breadcrumbs! And yeah...you may need to break down and buy Scarlet. I had to literally tear myself away from it to read some TTT posts. So good.

    1. Isn't it so funny? It was from Entertainment weekly. I am working on this series, it's so hard to read that one and keep up with my challenges!! So glad you liked Scarlet, I always get worried when they rewrite my favorites.
